We have been delighted to work with Trebah Garden Trust to bring a fresh and contemporary look to their visitor centre in Mawnan Smith, Cornwall. The challenge was to create a scheme that would allow for the accommodation of large visitors numbers through the summer months where turn over is high but balance that by creating a selection of settings that would work throughout the year.

Our ambition was to achieve a well thought through elegant simplicity that would allow the impressive architecture and famous gardens to shine. Our strategy was about creating a simple elegance to an informal dining offer highlighted by a lighting design scheme that would allow the architectural structure to breathe. The result is that the focal point is now a giant 9 metre timber lighting installation over an appetising food offer which  complements a calm, tactile environment appealing to young and old.

“I couldn’t recommend Hart Miller Design highly enough. Anna immediately understood what we wanted – and then came back with ideas that were better. She dealt with multiple stakeholders and suppliers really well, and it all went very smoothly.”  Trebah Garden Trust
